We are all utterly devastated by what has happened to our school. I will be meeting with our teachers and school staff this morning, along with staff from the Education Service and wider Fife Council to put in place plans for our young people.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has asked people to avoid the area to allow access by the emergency services.
Deputy assistant chief officer Stuart Stevens said: "This is a very large and complex incident and our firefighters continue to work in difficult conditions to extinguish the flames."
Mr Stevens said the fire was burning in the main school building but crews had been working around its perimeter to contain the flames from spreading."This will be a prolonged incident and our advice to nearby residents and members of the public is to avoid the area to allow access for emergency service vehicles, and close doors and windows due to high volumes of smoke," Mr Stevens said.
